Abstract

The maximum output in intensities reachable through backward Raman amplification of laser pulses in plasma can, in principle, exceed by orders of magnitude methods based on material gratings and amplifiers. The backward Raman amplification (BRA) in plasma is a resonant interaction in which a long duration laser pulse (pump) transfers most of its energy to a counter propagating short duration laser pulse (seed) via the mediation of the Langmuir wave.
